He tells the story of his youth as one of being a member but not totally committed to the church and certainly not thinking of a mission until one evening quite late he came home to hear his mother in vocal prayer kneeling by his bed. He explained that as he stood outside the door to his room and listened in on the vocal prayer of this mother his life changed in the twinkling of an eye. He knew and understood both the love of his mother but he also began to understood the love of the Savior. Since that day he has focused on preparing for and serving as a valiant missionary. It can be said of Elder Mchunu that “He did not doubt his mother knew it”.
Take a look at June 13, 2004 to see another interesting story about Elder Mchunu. It is nice to see him finally smiling in this picture.
